Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Remember when they told you, “Don’t ever touch the Registry”? Now, as a power user or IT pro, you’re beyond those newbie warnings. But maybe you still don’t know how to use the Registry to your advantage. You should. With Jerry Honeycutt’s help, you will.

Honeycutt offers an all-inclusive tour of the Registry’s contents and tools: not just Regedit, but everything from Windiff to Regmon. Then, he shows how to edit and script the Registry to solve a wide range of problems, from desktop customization to security, system management to deployment. You’ll walk through using registry-based policies, configuring Windows servers, mapping Tweak UI, even cloning WinXP disk images (much improved from Win2K).

Honeycutt’s explanations are detailed and clear, so you shouldn’t ever get into trouble. But if you do, relax: There’s a full chapter on troubleshooting, too. Bill Camarda, from the October 2005 Read Only
